A flurry of frustration met my inbox this morning. While Tuesday night was bad -- the Bulldogs missed their first 26 of 30 shots from the floor in the second half in a 77-52 loss to St. John's -- it seemed the tipping point in a season that has spiraled further and further out of control.

The overwhelming sentiment, expressed by one fan after another:

What is wrong with Butler basketball?

It has been, put simply, a long season. A bad season. A humbling season.

And as the calendar inches towards March – the month of the year in which Butler has enjoyed so many memorable moments, the month they are accustomed to being at their best – there is only a sign of the opposite.

As I wrote late last night, the Bulldogs are in a funk that has stretched from narrow losses in January to lopsided ones in February. But there's more. There's off the court issues.

Butler junior forward Kameron Woods, a starter in every game this season before Tuesday and the Big East's leader in rebounds (9.1/game) did not make the trip with the team to New York. First-year Butler coach Brandon Miller said late Tuesday Woods was "temporarily suspended from the team."

Asked to elaborate, Miller declined.

"That's all I will comment on that," he said.

Woods is now the fourth Butler player to be suspended at least one game this season. Two more have transferred. The Bulldogs have lost 12 of 14 Big East games
